Runway Dash

Saturday, May 18

Runners Time(s): 6:30 am - 12:00 pm
Location:Historic Hangar 244 and former MCAS El Toro Runways | Map & Directions


Rally the troops to run, walk, or stroll at the Orange County Great Park’s Runway Dash and enjoy a day of fun and fitness while supporting Irvine’s 2/11 Marine Adoption Committee and the Kiwanis Club of Irvine.

Join runners, walkers and friends of Irvine’s 2/11 and the Irvine Kiwanis Club on a scenic track that winds through the former Marine Corps Air Station El Toro and the Great Park Farm. The 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run courses feature music, scenic displays, vintage airplanes and military vehicles.

Participants will receive commemorative “Dog Tags” for their participation in the race along with entry into our community Pancake Breakfast.  Both the 5K and Fun Run races are non-competitive and will not be chip-timed. There will be a finish line clock available for the 5K.

Pancake Breakfast
Following the 5K and Fun Run, join us at Historic Hangar 244 as the Kiwanis Club of Irvine fires up the griddle to offer pancakes, sausage, and drinks to all participants and visitors supporting the event.  Other activities will include a family fun area featuring our Hero Training Course for Kids, games, live music, and more!
